eBook: Dr. Syn – A Smuggler Tale of the Romney Marsh

October 20, 2014|In General

Russell Thorndike created Doctor Syn for this, his first novel, published in 1915. A native of Romney Marsh in southeast England, he chose to base the book around real-life smuggling in the area in the late 18th century. Dr. Christopher Syn, an elderly parson, has his life turned upside down when His Majesty’s government comes to Dymchurch-under-the-Wall to investigate that smuggling.

Unlike some of the other recent editions of this book, this version is complete. It has been thoroughly proofread and newly-set in Caslon, the leading book typeface of the 18th century. I hope you enjoy the book and the reading experience.
